Henry’s Elegy For Tupac Shakur

Bang bang pop pop Tupac’s down
soon he’s outta the hospital
he’s in court now his swagger NWA hey

there’s blood in the hood
smack crack quack
wonder why black kids grow up black

pop the oriental in the store
pop the Esses drivin by
and only the king of pop gets acquitted

but hell he ain’t black and po no mo
bang bang pop pop Tupac’s down
this time he’s down for the count dog

next thing you know biggie gets his too
sad yeah but where’s the malcolm x to grab
you by the neck and shake this shit outta you
